Pattaya - Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia beat Maria Kirilenko of Russia 6-7 (4/7), 6-3, 6-3 in a hard-fought final to defend her title at the Pattaya Open.
Third-seeded Hantuchova took 3 hours and 14 minutes to win her fifth career title, and first since winning in Thailand a year ago.
Kirilenko had already spent more than nine-and-a-half hours on court just to get to the final, which was her first on the WTA Tour in nearly 16 months.
The Russian double-faulted to give Hantuchova the crucial break and a 5-3 lead in the deciding set. Hantuchova closed out the win with help of two forehand winners down the line.
